    Kim Hopkins



    Hi! My name is Kim Hopkins. I am excited to be your child's teacher this year! We are going to do so many fun things and learn a lot! I look forward to getting to know your child and your family. 

    Here is a little bit about me...I graduated from SUNY Geneseo in upstate New York in 2009 with a degree in Elementary Education and moved to North Carolina where I received my Masters in Reading Education in 2013. I was an assistant in first grade for two years and then taught my own first grade classroom for 3 years. I married my husband, Worth, in 2016 and we moved to Hattiesburg, MS for him to go to William Carey for medical school. I taught first grade at Petal Primary School for 4 years. Worth matched at UMMC with the child psychiatry program and we moved to Brandon in 2020. This will be my 2nd year teaching Kindergarten at MAE. We have one son, Alex, who is 2 years old and two cats, Mose and Toby. We are also expecting a little girl in January!

    I am looking forward to a great year in Kindergarten at MAE!
